Mr. Ramen San

Keep Calm… Eat Ramen… Mr Ramen-san is now my favourite ramen place in Melbourne CBD! Affordable, quick and great during Melbourne’s winter coming up. With authentic Japanese managing the restaurant, making their noodles daily in a cosy spot near Chinatown definitely gives you the feel as though you are in Japan! They do thick broths…

Hurricanes Grill – Darling Harbour

When in Sydney, you have to visit Hurricanes and have their ribs. I took my family here whilst we were visiting Sydney. They are very close to their cantonese tastebuds and wouldn’t be content with any other food because it’s their comfort food as they grew up in Asia. But the ribs sauce of Hurricanes…

Madam Woo – Queenstown

Madam Woo wasn’t at Queenstown when I last visited the town in 2014, so that got me to try something new! And no regrets. The interior is so unique that it has light touches of Malaysian history yet not overboard and still carries the fusion within. Madam Woo is spread around New Zealand in cities…

Cataract on Paterson

Another good pick for dinner during our stay at Launceston. And again close to the Cataract Gorge Reserve – hence the name “Cataract on Paterson”. We walked in and saw a large dining area. An interior of early settler mixed with an outback Australian barn feel. Their website looks pretty sophisticated but it errs on…

KooKoo

Easy to find and newly opened on Clarendon street in South Melbourne… We went on ANZAC day for our dinner. It was pretty quiet because everyone was home that night. But it was good for us to see their service and quality of food! I had the Messy bun is a hot dog twist on…

Ippudo Melbourne

Newly opened Ippudo is hidden in Artemis Lane of QV. It was a little bit tough to find the restaurant – I had full confidence that I’d find it in the common food restaurant area. NOPE! – it’s opposite Meat Fish Wine Restaurant. Shame on me who didn’t google the address! The line was long on…

Hawker Chan MEL vs SIN

Chan Hong Meng worked under a Hong Kong chef in his early years, learned and re-inspired the Cantonese Chicken Recipe. The recipe is now found at Hawker Chan… We knew the cheapest Michelin star meal opened in Melbourne Hawker Chan so we had to try both to compare! Went to Hawker Chan in Singapore- Chinatown…

Huff Bagelry

Huff Bagelry is a Breakfast & Lunch cafe situated at Carnegie. It also recently opened one in Mentone this year. Identified by my friend H, we decided to venture Koornang Road, Carnegie. It was both our first experience at Huff Bagelry. The area is tidy and cosy with cushions on the seats against the wall….
